Is this also part of the big Kingdom project with Kingdom Tower as crown piece?
Or is it a completely different project?

Damn this project is huge I wonder if all of it is going to get built since it's in Saudi Arabia this might actually happen.

Don't get too excited. This is nothing more than a vision ATM. Of the urban regeneration projects in Jeddah, only the one in Ruwais has substance. Even then, I suspect the 2 supertalls in that project may be scaled down as the project progresses.

eww.... I think that Saudis should slow down with the Jeddah development or it will eventually become in a same ugly city as Dubai is now... Not to mention that these towers are completely unoriginal, it doesn´t fit at all

How do you know I´ve never been to Saudi and that it fits? Kingdom tower fits, but this... uhm not that likely, but we´ll see, I will be glad if I´m mistaken
